So FOHA has this red ACD named Kloie (I call her FOHA's own Evil Reddog). She was adopted out to some people, did pretty well with those people, but was returned recently due to a really stupid situation. Kloie was on a leash with her people when two off-leash dogs ran up to them, I don't know if it was an attack or if there were injuries to any dog, but after that Kloie "became DA" (my guess is she became dog reactive, not surprising for an ACD). Her people rented a condo, and the owners of it told them to get rid of Kloie after that, so back she came I guess. I feel bad for the dog, none of it was her fault. At the shelter Kloie hates most people, and is very cage aggressive, barking and snapping and snarling at anyone who approaches. She was the same way the first time she was at FOHA too (when I still worked there), and even though I gave her treats all the time, she NEVER warmed up to me. In fact, when I let her out in the yard once, she charged me snapping right after I had given her cheese! The only time I was able to touch that dog was when she was out with a former volunteer named Ren (who is no longer there because of stupidity I won't go into). Ren was Kloie's Person, and Kloie was a different dog when Ren was around. With everyone else she would either tolerate them for a walk or outright be aggressive to them. What I'm wondering, is that a normal temperament for an ACD? I really haven't been around purebred ACDs.
